Resolve to edge in a little reading every day, if it is but a single sentence. If you gain fifteen minutes a day, it will make itself felt at the end of the year.
Detente is a readiness to Resolve differences and conflicts not by force, not by threats and sabre-rattling, but by peaceful means, at the conference table.leonid brezhnev
In every deed of mischief he had a heart to Resolve, a head to contrive, and a hand to execute.Edward Gibbon
Much there is I can stand, and most things not easy to suffer I bear with quiet Resolve, just as a god commands it. Only a few I find as repugnant as snakes and poison These four: tobacco smoke, bedbugs, garlic, and †.
Recovery measures work better when they raise confidence - as Franklin D. Roosevelt understood. His fireside chats, and his inaugural address proclaiming he would fight the Great Depression with the same Resolve he would muster against a foreign foe, were aimed at reassuring Americans.
Resolve to be thyself: and know, that he Who finds himself, loses his misery.Matthew Arnold
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. We here highly Resolve that the dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from the earth.Abraham Lincoln
I am a Republican because I believe in the constitution, strength in national defense, limited government, individual freedom, and personal responsibility as the concrete foundation for American government. They reinforce the Resolve that the United States is the greatest country in the world and we can all be eternally grateful to our founding fathers for the beautiful legacy they left us today.martha raye
Reade was an emancipating writer because he seemed to speak as man to man to Resolve history into an intelligible pattern in which there was no need for miracles. Even if he was wrong, he was grown-up.william winwood reade
I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life's greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of Resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.anthony robbins
In my present insistence on high standards you will see that there is less self-indulgence than Resolve and application. I do not let the Christian monopolize the ideal of perfection. I have my own virtue, which I am constantly cultivating and refining by teaching myself not to tolerate in me or my surroundings anything but the exquisite.andré gide
President Marcos turned to me and directed his eyes into mine an instant of history that still replays in my memory and responded that should we stand our ground, a military confrontation against the rebels is inevitable. And in his baritone voice declared "I don’t want us to be shooting at our own people. We must Resolve this peacefully."Ferdinand Edralin Marcos
Why then dost thou choose to act in the same way? and why dost thou not leave these agitations which are foreign to nature, to those who cause them and those who are moved by them? And why art thou not altogether intent upon the right way of making use of things which happen to thee? for then thou wilt use them well, and they will be material for thee. Only attend to thyself, and Resolve to be a good man in every act which thou doest; and remember...marcus aurelius
We have two distinct types of political organization to take into account; and clearly, too, when their origins are considered, it is impossible to make out that the one is a mere perversion of the other. Therefore when we include both types under a general term like government, we get into logical difficulties; difficulties of which most writers on the subject have been more or less vaguely aware, but which, until within the last half-century, none of them has tried to Resolve.albert jay nock
Whatever America has to show in heroic living to-day, I doubt if she can show any thing finer than the quality of the Resolve, the steadfast effort hundreds of black and coloured men are making to-day to live blamelessly, honourably, and patiently, getting for themselves what scraps of refinement, learning, and beauty they may, keeping their hold on a civilization they are grudged and denied.
Man is of soul and body, formed for deeds Of high Resolve; on fancy's boldest wing.Percy Bysshe Shelley
In every deed of mischief, he [Andronicus Comnenus] had a heart to Resolve, a head to contrive, and a hand to execute.Edward Gibbon
Guwahati came under Mughal control in the 1630s and would change hands frequently thereafter. Gadadhar Singh not only drove out the invaders but Resolve internal disputes among Ahom nobles.
At thirty, man suspects himself a fool, Knows it at forty, and reforms his plan; At fifty, chides his infamous delay, Pushes his prudent purpose to Resolve, In all the magnanimity of thought; Resolves, and re-resolves, then dies the same. And why? because he thinks himself immortal, All men think all men mortal but themselves.Edward Young
Casey Maddox wrote that when philosophy dies, action begins. I would say in addition that when we stop hoping for external assistance, when we stop hoping that the awful situation we're in will somehow Resolve itself, when we stop hoping the situation will somehow not get worse, then we are finally free truly free to honestly start working to thoroughly Resolve it. I would say when hope dies, action begins.
Come on up. Let's see if we can Resolve our grievances the democratic way.
O, that this too too solid flesh would melt, Thaw, and Resolve itself into a dew.
